Looking to rent a photo booth for your wedding reception is a fantastic way to provide some extra entertainment for your guests whilst capturing some great shots of all the people who came to help you celebrate your special day.
You can use the photo strips as wedding favours, have your guests put them in your guest book along with their message, or simply keep the photos as mementos for you and your guests! Whatever your reason for choosing to rent one, here are some great tips to get the most out of your wedding photo booth.
Encourage group shots
A lone guest in a photo booth might feel a little self conscious (think passport photo grimaces), but as soon as you get couples or groups piling in to the booth the photos will be more natural and fun.
Time it right
Generally the cost of renting a photo booth depends on the number of hours you want it for, so consider the best time to have your booth set up and allow access for your guests. Most vendors will hire the booth out for the whole day which is great because you can capture all of the action, but the peak time for great photos is after dinner, when your guests are most relaxed and have got to know one another better.
Don’t forget to use it yourself
Many couples are so busy socialising and following formalities on their wedding day that they don’t have time to taste the food or listen to the music they have paid for. Make sure you take a couple of minutes to cuddle up in the photo booth with your new husband!
